But at the same time, our attention is distributed with regards to the properties of this perceptual object: the different aspects of this integrated whole and the different ways they contribute to its being an integrated whole. In order to appreciate the unity and integration of what we experience aesthetically, we need to exercise our attention in this focused (with regards to objects) and at the same time distributed (with regards to properties) manner: we need aesthetic attention.
